Backwards compatible games for Xbox One won't be coming monthly anymore

Today, Microsoft announced the latest batch of backwards compatible 360 games for Xbox One. As it turned out, it was the last time they'd do so.

Not because backwards compatibility support is coming to an end - in a press release, the company announced that backwards compatible games would now be released as soon as they have "received the engineering and publisher stamp of approval", rather than being held back for release as a bundle each month.

Considering the release of this month's set of games was pushed back because certain games weren't ready, I'd say this is a pretty positive move on the whole.
